For Get Me Not

When our time has come to end
Where we go weeks,months & years
Without out speaking friend to friend
I pray in that moment, our memories begin to transend.
Into your present beginning
To our unexpected end.
I pray you for get me not
Of the love I gave you, my friend..

Sticky

"If lust is what you find on corners
Than love must be that voice that warns us
To love is to trust gut feelings
That doesn't kilt over by gulity reasoning.
 When you least expect it,
It's an emotion that claims it's own
Over others who's doubts leave them easily defected
 Real lovers always prove that their down
 Love sticks together, even after lust has ran out
Love sticks together because it follows its own heart
Not the exiting of a doubtful crowd.."

Remember



Remember what used to matter when it was all true
How could I live alone in a world made for two?
Fights and arguments show how much we care
Although the pain is so unfair
Remember what are seemingly, now memories of love in fruition
The desire and passion shared with our hearts ambition
Like grains of sand, ever so composed upon the ocean floor
Share strength In the violence as the waves crash and break over the open shores.

I remember the current that brought you in
And the oceans that suddenly took you out
While I tried my best to be your helmed anchor
Tightly fasted to your injured heart
I recalled where we went wrong
And the whys of why we grew apart.
And before you left this is all I wanted to say
From my heart to yours,

I never wanted you to sail away
I didn't mean to remain so distant

And play out little girl games.
But while you were in search of depth & passion
I could barely keep up

Or my head above water.

Afraid our that our existing personality diffrences
could potentially come down crashing,
Being irrational that I wouldn't be good enough
 to ever face your family
 I didn't want to face that challenge,

Not knowing if they'd ever fully infest in us.
I didn't want to share a future
If it might mean you'd change your mind about me
Leaving me swimming in a seaworld of lonely memories. 
I couldn't bare that reality, so I let you leave me on that open shore.
I was so afraid and now it's too late to tell you
from my heart to yours.

I missed writing with John and so since we've had a long break. This was what we created & his side of it way more creative & deep than mine. And why I love writing with him. Enjoy!

Simple

You make our love so complicated
When really it's so simple
You say you love me
I say I love you back
And everything in between
Will work itselves out
It's that simple.

So fear is your worry
Fear I'll walk out
Fear I'll take your man card
Fear that I'll get you to live up
Up to your highest potential?
Well babe it's simple
Because I'd be there right with you.

I can't say we will agree on everything
I can't gurantee things will work out in our favor
But I know I'd never give up on you
Because my vows aren't shallow
I gurantee that much
I'd save you before you'd drown
It's that simple..
My love isn't going anywhere
So stop being so stubborn
Let me into the places your afraid of
Together we can make it.
I'm not easy
But for you I will make our love simple..

Inspired by the musiq I was listen to at the time...

I


Here I am
Waiting patiently
You claim your reaching forward
So that I'll stick around
To hear you echo sweet nothings
To keep my heart beating
Your name to sound.
I refuse to stay!
If your gonna keep playing me wrong
I can not stay, whenever you growl
Wait! Wait! Babe!
Don't you leave me now!

You wanna breathe me in
How about you study me first
From the inside out
And Head to toe
I'm obviously one in whom you thought
You've somehow have come to earn
When the records state
You haven't even put in that much work.
I'm not staying!!!

Not until you've come to all your senses
Aware I'm a woman of my worth
It's either all of you or I'm walking..

Inspired by this boys II men song & just about giving ppl second,third, fourth chances. Knowing when to stick around & when to let go. Because letting go is a must in some cases & fighting for love is a must in others. Just depends on what God's telling your heart.

Gotta

I gotta take the risk
Chances are you don't care
You want what you want
Whether we're together
Or states & countries apart,
Your challenge was, be who you are
Don't I dare change for you
Babe be who you are
Don't you know?
That's what caught my interest
Not because I was looking for you to play a part..

I see you more enhanced
Then you now see yourself
I picture us in a master piece
The very reason I stuck to our plan,
Letting you go for a moment
Isn't anything I can't handle
If the end result is eternity
A few months apart is totally manageable.

And chances are
That our plan, wasn't by chance, at all
Because I never could let go of you
No matter what I had to risk
To keep you in my heart.
I gotta hold it together
Though I miss you and wanna fall apart
I'm gonna keep it together
Because your the only one, who has my heart..

Missing You

You were on my mind when i woke up this morning
remembering your smile
i guess the next time i'll see your face
will take a little while
i was remembering your arms around me
love the way they always feel warm
with you by my side
i completely feel no harm
i was remembering your voice
makes my heart skip a beat
but without you baby
my whole body's weak
i was remembering our times
the good and the bad
the funny times when you cheered me up
and especially the sad
remembering your eyes
how they always meet mine
remembering all the little things you do
to make my life worthwhile
i was wondering when we'll be together
just us two
i guess i'm missing you more than i usually do
By Kanya
 
 
I was feeling really weak today and almost allowed my roomies to get on my nerves. I thought about who I was missing & found this poem on google.
Inspired me to write my following poems "Chances Are" & "Weak".. Love writing..

Resign

I'm settled for once
I don't have to try the impossible
Because with you I've fallen
And with you love is completely possible.
I'm happy that because of you
Many "firsts" have come my way
And I haven't had to compromise anything
Your truth resides so sincerely within me
That mere words could never begin to explain

How I know with a surety 
Being engaged in your spirit
Is different from any other
I know your my other half
The moment I signed up to wait
While you pledged to serve our Heavenly Father.
BY Overland Afo

Inspired by the fact that through out our lives love come & goes . But when it's gone we should always remember more love is on its way. And if it's meant to be, the love you freed will be yours if you let God work it out.
